Posted on Twitter, a statement from CEO Paweł Marchewka said: “We were initially aiming for a Spring 2020 release with Dying Light 2, but unfortunately, we need more development time to fulfill our vision. We will have more details to share in the coming months, and will get back to you as soon as we have more information.
Dying Light 2 had never been given a firm release date, but the Spring 2020 window was fast approaching. By not providing an updated release date or window, Techland has freed itself from time constraint and, in theory, given itself indefinite time in order to bring Dying Light 2 to the standards that the team is chasing. While internally things are no doubt more complicated, it’s clear that the team has decided more time is required to work on the project.This is the fifth game to be delayed within under a week; the last few days have seen slips from Final Fantasy 7 Remake, Iron Man VR, Marvel’s Avengers, and Cyberpunk 2077, the latter two having being delayed a few months beyond their initial planned dates.

Dying Light 2 is still looking promising, despite the delay. When we last saw it at E3 2019 we discovered that its branching story may mean you only see 50% of its content in your first playthrough.
